However, I’ve yet to post anything truly personal. I figured this would be the time to do so and share my thoughts on the academic year […]

  • Diary of a postgrad student – the end…sort of

    This is my “I’m-happy-my-exam-is-over” face. On Friday I had my advanced stats exam. I’ve always had an interesting relationship with exams.

    I have an exam tomorrow. Exams are brilliant. All those tasks that you have been putting off, get done. Even scrubbing the cupboards with a toothbrush becomes more appealing than revising.

  • De-stressing

    To say that this time of year is hectic would be an understatement. With exams, coursework, presentations and the busy run-up to Christmas in both personal and work life, it’s easy to forget that this is supposed to be the time to relax and be with family. The late nights cramming in the library surrounded […]
